    I was wondering if anybody out there knows the value of a Winchester 101 American Flyer Livebird gun. The gun I am looking at has both the 28" and
    29 1/2 barrels with the bottom barrel being choked. The gun is LNIB. According to the Blue Book of Gun Values only 45 guns in this configuration we made in 1988.

    I know the Blue Book value ($3500 or so) but was wondering if anybody out there had any inside trader information on this particular outfit.

    Thanks,

    Darryl Howard

    Bill,

    That's what I was kinda thinking. This one is a grand less than the BB's $3500.

    It has been there awhile and recently I started to lose sleep over it. I really do hate when that happens. The only bad part is.........if I do buy it I will continue to lose sleep, at least for awhile, for spending that much on a gun I plan on sticking under the bed!

    Thanks,

    Darryl

    Maybe that's the sound they make before the rib flies off??

    What are you going to do with it. XF over WinChoke is a tuff gun to shoot.

    If you open the top barrel up, you destroy the value you just bought.

    If it is already opened up, maybe that is why it is below book.
